My Most Embarrassing Photo and How I Used To Look

February 22, 2011 by Joey Vaillancourt · 37 Comments 

Embarrassing This past weekend I was treated to a surprise birthday party organized by Natasha and my family and I got to meet up with old friends and  spent some quality time with people who I enjoy being around.

My 25th birthday is yet another one that I will never forget and that is because of the great party and this years accomplishments, but also because of a gift that my mom gave me…

After opening some birthday cards and eating some cheesecake (my favorite) we went downstairs and watched a DVD photo compilation that my mom put  together for me for a gift. It was a great 3 minute video of some of the best photographed memories of my life…

But then one image came up and well…

Have you ever saw a photo that made you sick to your stomach?

Did you ever see an image that brought back painful memories?

Want to know the worse part? It was a photo of me!!!

The photo below is a photo from when I was about 16 years old and I was severely underweight…skinny…and I still believed that’s just the way I was made and there was nothing I could do about it.

 Copy of before photo

That photo was a HUGE reminder of the time when I was still super scrawny, small and helpless in trying to get bigger.

Look at my plate…I was eating steak potatoes and more steak but I  still couldn’t gain…honestly, I was running up a tall grocery bill that  got me  nowhere with gaining muscle.

Heck, my current girlfriend (Natasha) said she would not have even dated me back then just because of the way I looked. Do you blame her? I looked very young for my age, had a baby face and was sickly small!

Thanks for the great gift mom…Just kidding :-)

I walked away that night after my birthday with some stirred emotions. I began to wonder what life would have been like if I didn’t learn how to transform my body and gain muscle and defeat the ’skinny me’.

What it would have been like if I just would have listened to everyone who told me that I was just born this way and that’s the way it was going to be the rest of my life… “Your mother is small, your father is small therefore YOU will be…”
Yup, you guessed it – “SMALL!”

Sure, I know I am not the absolute BIGGEST Guy out there but the what matters is the starting point – I started from about 140lbs of skinny AND flabby body to about 180lbs now of ROCK solid muscle.

The transformation is relative to your beginning point…just like a person who started at 200lbs and went to 280lbs is good, going from 140lbs to 180lbs is good right?

Now, take a look at the difference in the photo below  that I posted to Facebook the other day…

 Picture1

I can’t see myself becoming the person I am today without gaining muscle and proven others wrong. I am thankful for finding the right information and not giving up when everyone told me to.

That is why I am so passionate about helping others to gain muscle and completely change their lives forever…because that’s what will happen – your life WILL change.

Sure, it does take hard work, dedication and time but the benefits pay off forever. And the good news is, because it’s slightly difficult, most people will never do it. Why is that good for you? Because when you DO end up doing it, you will be that much more noticeable!

It’s going to be the 1 Year Anniversary of Bones To Buff coming up in March and so many people have been getting results by using this program I designed to help people who are exactly the way I was.

Listen, I do know what it’s like to be the skinny guy who feels insecure, small and powerless. It’s been a while since I transformed but the memories will always remain.

If are serious about making a change, I STRONGLY suggest tryingBones To Buff for yourself and seeing exactly what is possible.

    It can be hard to tell which brands are charging more for their products because you will get more for the money and which are simply inflating the price to get more money in their own pockets.

  7. not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later on. Many thanks

  8. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website? My website is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would truly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Appreciate it!

  9. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, awesome blog!

  10. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

  12. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  13. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

  14. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  16. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

    Greetings, I do believe your blog may be having web browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, excellent blog!

  20. his is three weeks earlier than normal because of the full implementation of the new PALS system for license purchasing. Applicants can submit their antlerless applications to any county treasurer in Pennsylvania. The antlerless application lists first, second and third preferences for which WMU the antlerless license is requested.

  21. When the Lehigh River Sojourn drew to a close after paddling into Easton’s Hugh Moore Park earlier this month, it signaled not only the end of the amazing trip down the Lehigh River, but also the presentation of the 2009 Friend of the River Awards by the Wildlands Conservancy.

  22. I also put out fabric paint and stencils with fun designs like cupcakes, butterflies, ice cream cones, etc. She starts telling the friend how it a miracle and that the Holy Spirit is blessing her in so many ways!

  24. Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  25. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of Wordpress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  26. Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

  27. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!

  28. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  29. Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clarity in your post is simply nice and i could assume you’re an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.
